While updates from today's Preds practice (such as Bryan Mullen's at The Tennessean) indicated that Steve Sullivan is probable for Saturday night's game against Phoenix, and that Marcel Goc will not play, it's also been confirmed (after Willy Daunic mentioned it on 104.5) that Goc has actually been placed on Injured Reserve, which means he'll miss 7 days at a minimum. That means he will also miss Tuesday at Columbus, but could return for Thursday at home against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Goc tumbled into the boards early in the second period during last night's 3-1 win over Vancouver, and had his left arm in a sling after the game. He missed time already this year after suffering a separated shoulder in a game against Washington.
